Veteran's Day 2004

   On November 9, 2004, in the Arlington National Cemetery, accompanied by Richard C. Becker, 82nd Airborne Division Association President and the division color guard and bugler, George Stoeckert Hq1, and Russell Mayer, Hq2, placed a wreath at the 508th PIR monument and at 1st Sgt. Leonard Funk's grave.

   Among the relevant remarks offered during the ceremonies was the announcement that the 508th PIR Association had retired on October 19, 2004 at Camp Blanding, Florida.

   This announcement was met with emotion by a large, delightful group of airborne oriented people. Best wishes and sadness were expressed by many people.
